As most of you know I am a Christian Author. In the recent weeks I have had the experience with dealing with a so called Islamic family.
It has been my strong belief that one has the right to worship freely as they so desire. However through this family I most certainly learned that some religious doctrines worship hatred.
Most of my writings have always been of Godâ��s love and grace for the lost world however during these last few weeks I was introduced to individuals that believed that God was not of love.
The debate if God is a loving God or God of great wrath and is to be feared has been a strong debate throughout the various religious sects causing much hostility (even war) between various religious groups.
Being out right brute and honest; if you were to sit down and think about spirituality and religion (No matter what your belief or doctrine you follow) how would you describe God?
Is he a God of Love or a God of great wrath?
For the most part, all religious doctrines preach some sort of hatred. Christianity is no different and actually boasts the lions share along with Islam. That family probably thinks the same thing about your religion.

I am sincerely curious as to why those who do not believe in the existence of God would spend time and energy to convince others to believe the same? I am asking this respectfully and am seeking true, valid answers--not attacks or arguments. I just want to understand the...

How did you decide upon and verify your own beliefs?As an atheist who constantly strives to learn and grow in a culture that is largely religious, I'm constantly engaging with theists of many types. Often, they provide philosophical arguments for the existence of God, but I've never met one...

If they truly believe that there is no God, why does it matter to them that I do believe?I have written online Christian articles. Those who comment on my Christian writings are usually, 75% Christians, 25% atheists. I appreciate all the comments, but what I find interesting is how hard some of the...
